Demo Day shortlisting is over! Which project has caught your eye?

Moledao
10 min readSep 21, 2022

Since Moledao was established last year, two global hackathons have been held to encourage blockchain developers to build projects in the Web3.0 space. Half a year on, many projects have matured and need more capital to develop and expand their products. Additionally, they also require more resources and support to grow as they enter the market.

To help entrepreneurial projects connect with investment institutions, as well as build their brand and grow their resource network, Moledao has organized our first Demo Day.

Demo Day is an event where teams present their projects to investors and developers in order to garner investment opportunities, attention and partnerships with like-minded organisations.

Registration was open for a month from 08 August 2022 to 09 September 2022. During this period, we received 44 valid project submissions, including both mature projects which have working products, as well as projects which are still in infancy.

Congratulations to the shortlisted projects for our Demo Day! If your project is not shortlisted, don’t be discouraged. Moledao will continue to follow up and connect you with the resources you need to empower you to realise your goals.
